“Consistent over the years - a safe bet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I went today with some friends fro from work. Everybody. Was pleased with what they had. Great pasta. Perhaps the best Carbonara in that area. The salads are very good and service is friendly. I have been going to that restaurant for years and it is always good

“After 20+ years, they still serve some of the best pasta in S. FL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

The food quality at Bugatti's is consistently first rate. I particularly like the tagliatelle pesto and the ravioli pomodoro. Their Italian coffee is among the best I've tasted in a restaurant. Prices are very reasonable for the quality.

“TERRIBLE!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Service is horrible. i could not stand the way they were treating my family. No respect from the owner and the chef. I simply left the restaurant before making the order. Go at your own risk.

“Avoid at lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

Even though my office is very close by I have not been to Bugatti's for lunch in a long time. Went recently and rediscovered why I will not go back for lunch. There is no value whatsover at lunch. The food was just so so and not much of it for the price. My guest got a pasta entree which did not include a small salad, was not a lot of food and cost $16. Just a few doors down is Anacapri where the same Pasta would have been $12 or so and included a small salad to start. I got a $14 salad with "chicken". The chicken was maybe 2 to 3 oz of processed chicken.

I would recommend Anacapri 100 times over in comparison. The only good thing was that because their prices are outrageous for lunch, the restaurant was fairly empty so service was prompt.

“The Best Restaurant in Coral Gables and the Best Authentic Italian in all of Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

I've been a patron for over 15 years and not once have I ever had a bad meal. In fact it has always been exceptional - down to the homemade bread they serve you when you first sit.

I've seen reviews where they complain about the staff and I have to disagree strongly. They have very professional and attentive waiters, they are just not constantly in your face. They are always within eye shot, since the place is not big, and come when called. If not, any other staff, be it another waiter, the manager or the owners are more than happy to assist when your waiter is in the middle of attending to another table. Nothing but courtesy. I guess if you feel that your waiter needs to park themsleves around your table and conatantly chit-chat with your party, like at a dime-a-dozen, corporate-run, itallian franchise, then the wait staff here will not be your style, go to Maccaroni Grill. The food would never compare but at least you'll get a singing waiter.

Everything is delicious but I have a few favorites such as their regular menu items - Bombay Chicken Ravioli, Saffron & Shrimp Risotto, and some of their rotating specials like their Sausage Risotto, Lobster Ravioli, Seafood dishes Al Cartuccio, Octopus Salami, Lasagna on the 1st Wednesday of every month. Also, their tiramisu is exquisite and made with orange zest.

I don't want to name names but on the same block there's another itallian restaurant that's a little more trendy, gets pretty crowed and is quite popular... but I don't understand why when Bugatti's is just steps away. I suggest you walk past that other Itallian place and right to Bugatti's. It's worth the extra steps, better quality food, more authentic and more delicious!
